Lit from Within, Selected Haiku of Ruth Yarrow


Categories: ,


Winner of a Touchstone Distinguished Books Award 2016 from The Haiku Foundation!

Ruth Yarrow is one of the most accomplished haiku poets writing in English. Lit from Within is her long-awaited personal selection from nearly 5 decades of highly-acclaimed work, and her first volume with Red Moon Press. She is a naturalist, environmental educator, activist and organizer for peace, justice and a sustainable planet.

“If one considers haiku a sort of poetic DNA, our relationship with Ruth Yarrow cannot be doubted. But the closeness of that relationship is an endless source of warmth, hope and wonder. These poems consistently embody a loving presence and it is no wonder that so many of them have become as familiar to us as members of our own families.”
— John Stevenson

          tucking the bedspread
          under double bed pillows
          her old bosoms hang

     snag in her memory:
     chapped hands stroke
     the silken quilt
